I share your problem and don't know the answer. To piggy-back on your post I also wanted to ask if anyone knew of any MP3 players that will play gap-less(kind of a buzz kill on WRS and other GD jams)

I have the same problem. But I do burn these mp3s to disc to listen to(not for trade, etc...). When I load the converted wav files into Cooledit, the gaps are seen in the wavform, and can be deleted. But this is a hassle. I think this is some way to maybe track the mp3s, similar to cuts introduced on copies of shows so the people who leak them know where they are going. Or it is some kind of punishment for using the evil MP3 format.

Hey gang, thanks for the replies; Jim, I noticed the same thing when I loaded them into CoolEdit; of course, doing this with the 25 or so tracks for just one show would be a hassle,but to do it for many shows would be an even greater hassle! I think you're right about punishment for use of the evil MP3! And for my laziness, too...

Ming, I think you may be referring to Track-At-Once recording vs. Disc-At-Once; these gaps, as Jim mentioned, seem to be in the files themselves, as PART of the file. I do wonder if Nero might be a better burning suite, tho...

Thanks again, still hoping for a definitive answer; I won't be offended if they are put there on purpose, I'm just curious why!
